Today, we end the week with the best track to accompany our week and it is entitled “Shockwave” by the indie artist Sarah Rae.
The song, extracted from her newest album “Brand New Eyes”, which was written in 2020, unveils a catchy rock song with haunting and airy vocals and addictive production. The singer’s creativity is undeniable as she also blends powerful eclectic guitar riffs with touches of post-punk.
Sarah Rae’s particular voice will never be forgotten, and “Shockwave” is a single that you need to experience right now:
We had the pleasure to discuss with Sarah Rae, discover our interview with her right now:
Welcome to our redaction, we are really glad to have you today. First of all, can you tell us who you are and how you started to make music?
My name is Sarah, and I go by Sarah, Sarah Rae, or “Hey, red!” as the people of East Atlanta like to do. I started singing when I was eight in choir, and it was almost more natural than breathing for me. In grade school, I tried the flute, but the piano called to me more than anything, and I just always sought to connect myself to the collective through sound, and feeling.
What is your main inspiration when it comes to the writings?
Pure feeling. I adore writing about how I feel, because once I was taught in an acting class that vulnerability is relatable? I find that mostly to be true, but people still love to hear groovy riffs, and not super heavy experimentation – although it’s super fun to do in a studio.
Can you describe your creative process?
My creative process starts with lyrics – always. I may have a few pitch classes knocking around in my head, or maybe even a full progression chord, but mostly I think about how I feel. What did I just see? How can I turn that in to a relatable word? That probably mostly has to do with my literature background in college.
Can you tell us more about your latest release?
Brand New Eyes is a story-telling album I wrote in 2020 about my experience with the pandemic, and how it really led me to just accept myself, and never settle for less than I deserve. It starts confused, curious with Shockwave, and ends strong, eclectic, and dance with Galaxy Flower!
What do you plan for the future?
My future goals are live performances. I’m seeking out indie management right now since my label primarily does distribution, GFX, and mastering. I’d love to have someone walk with me down this journey as I transition from salon owner, to career musician!
